Product Description

Product Description

Inspired by recent worldwide economic events, the acclaimed third season of the award-winning legal thriller stars two-time Emmy®-winner Glenn Close as litigator Patty Hewes. Conftonting the most challenging case of her illustrious career, Patty and trusted lieutenant Tom Shayes (Tate Donovan) meet their match against the manipulative Tobin family empire, matriarch Marilyn (Lily Tomlin), son Joe (Campbell Scott) and the clan's loyal attorney Leonard Winstone (Martin Short). When former protégée Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) is also pulled into the maelstrom, she discovers she hasn't escaped Patty Hewes after all.

From Amazon.co.uk

After the middling second season of complex legal thriller Damages, the onus was very much on season three to recapture the excellent of the show’s first run. Fortunately, this is a real return to form, and frequently finds the programme very much at its best.

This time in Damages, Glenn Close’s Patty Hewes remains as ruthless as always, and this time, the programme makers have put her up against a case as tough as any she’s faced. For this time, she’s working for the American government, charged with trying to get back billions of dollars. It’s a tough job, and it’s going to take the best in the business to even attempt it. Which is where Hewes comes in.

Once again, Glenn Close is quite brilliant here, anchoring the show with a terrific central turn. Rose Byrne returns too, and again provides a strong foil for Close. And in this third season, Campbell Scott plays Joe Tobin, although he struggles to make too much of an impact. Furthermore, there’s an unwillingness to let go of a character from earlier series, which doesn’t help Damages here.

But it’s still a rollicking-good television series. Damages remains one of the most compelling legal thrillers that television has produced in recent times, and the likelihood is that this third season is the last. However, the good news is that it’s going out in fine form… --Jon Foster

Damages is one of, if not the best legal drama on TV. If the rumours are true and this is the final season, then the show goes out with a bang, rather than a whimper. Glenn Close is on top form as usual as ruthless Patty Hewes, as is Rose Byrne as Ellen Parsons, who no longer works for Patty but still manages to get caught up in her world. This season has so many twists and turns and in usual Damages fashion, results in one hell of a shocking first episode, which plays out over the season through a series of flashbacks/flashforwards. The only strange aspect of this season I was not overly thrilled about was the return of Ted Danson as Arthur Frobisher, who's rise and fall are being made into a movie. I thought this whole storyline was unnecessary, but at the same time, it was still an enjoyable distraction from the rather depressing albeit gripping main season-long storyline involving the Tobin family. Ted Danson is great as Frobisher, but I just thought it was a strange reason to bring the character back. Other notable performances this season include Tate Donovan as Tom Shayes, Lily Tomlin as Marilyn Tobin, Martin Short as Leonard Winstone and a brief return from the fantastic Timothy Olyphant as Wes Krulik (he returns in the season finale). The season finale ties up all the loose ends of the season but also helps to wrap up other stories from earlier in the show, and would serve very well as a fitting series finale, if the rumours are true. However, until it has been confirmed, we can all hope and dream that this fantastic show will grace our screens again next year.

Please don't listen to a certain review below, whilst season 2 was a dip in form, season 3 is gripping, not just one of the best legal dramas, one of the best tv shows. Period.

We can only hope for season 4, but if not, season 3 was a good way to go out.

Damages 3 begins with high drama (especially so for those who know the first two series because the drama concerns a key player who had thus far been relatively unscathed by the action). The opening events are unexpected and unexplained (until the end! As with the first two series the watcher is then taken back and forth between the narratives of the present and the narratives of the past building to an explanation of the opening shocking scenes. It helps to have seen the first two series because those stories are picked up here as threads in the overall plot. Glenn Close is, as always, spellbinding but the other players including Ted Danson are also excellent. The plot is intricate and complex (so better to watch on dvd than tv because you can pause to work it out!) The side narrative about Glenn Close's son is well woven in and really gripping with its unexpected turns of event. The overall production - photography, music, locations - are an integral part of the pleasure. Excellent! Enjoy!

Series two of Damages seemed to lose its way a little, but here Patty is back to her devious best.

The familiar format of showing you an event in "flash forward" and the main action explaining how we got there.

If you had doubts about series two, this is a reassuring return to the style and tension of series one.

Fantastic as always. This series doesn't disappoint. Contrary to other reviewers I find the whole set of series fantastic. This series continues the journey. Not keen on the repeated 6 months ago, 3 months later, to-ing and fro-ing makes it difficult at times to keep up with the story at times but it all comes together at the end. Glenn Close is just fabulous - ice cold.

Whilst it was always going to be difficult to live up to the original and gripping first series, Damages has always remained great TV. Ok, it is not perfect... the plots might get a little over convoluted and the stretch the bounds of credibility, but for sheer entertainment value I give it 5 stars. After the dip in form of the (still watchable) second series, the third series is back on form and it is the strong cast that really holds this show together. Buy and enjoy!

A friend suggested I watch these and I am glad I did. Glenn Close and Rose Byrne are excellent in the lead roles. This is the story of a ruthless, successful lawyer who is tempered by a more human assistant. The storylines are great. Highly recommended.
